Rostam swung by KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic on Monday to play some new tunes and talk about what the future holds for him musically, spotted via Pitchfork. He played a solo track titled "Gwan" (at 13:15 into the interview) and another (31:13) from his project with Hamilton Leithauser (I Had A Dream That You Were Mine will be out September 23). He also cleared up "leaving" Vampire Weekend earlier this year and just what being a solo artist means to him.
